The FLC Seniors Acting Club is pleased to announce its second series of performances based on two, one-act plays. In this offering we are showcasing an original play written by one of our club members and an intergenerational piece written by former students from St. Mary’s drama program.
The Change is written by Dianna Campbell-Smith, directed by Helen Young with assistance from Valeria Orrego Vargas and stars Faye Brown, Milton Joseph, Mary Armstrong and Jeff Gottfredsen. Well into her career in the oil patch, Joan gets a promotion. She is excited about the work she will be doing but her choice of project sets off a series of events that put her on a collision course with her boss. Can Joan change things around?
The Perfect Psychos is written by Magaly Gil Orellana, co-directed by Andrea Cortes and Magaly Gil Orellana and stars Rose Bene, Carolyn Wright-Stronski and Denise Vaile. Norma and Marion are an older same sex couple who share numerous hobbies such as cooking, painting, and casual killing. They believe that murder is a great way to spend quality time and relieve stress. Then their nosy neighbour drops in!
